Are the C hubs available anywhere in graphite or aluminum yet? Both my friend and I have broken the right one, go figure...

No graphite part yet for the C-Hubs. But there are some hardened ones (that are not graphite) available since some month ago.

Since installing Team Suzuki steering hubs over two months ago, not one broken caster block, and only one broken arm at many races. IMO best investment you can make, saves your money for other goodies.

That's a good thing, but how does the knuckle affect the caster block's strength?

i picked up the suzuki hubs after reading a few pages back about the trailing arm - not sure who posted it. anyway, they had wrote that gives better steering response, and he was right. it feels a little twitchy, but i'm starting to get used to it. i actually got 'em because i kept stripping the hole where the kingpin goes.

thanks, mo for the setups. i really liked the interactive sheet. a friend of mine that used to race up north had told me about david goss - he said he was real fast with his previous car (tc3 i think). i was having trouble viewing his 5-11-03 setup. can you help me out?

thanks,
herb

I'm not really sure, but I believe the knuckle is weaker than the caster block.

I broke both the Knuckle and the C Hub... I'm seriously considering taking the C Hubs to a machine shop and seeing if they can duplicate a set of aluminum one's for me... In the srping I have a CNC mill coming to me, but I really don't want to wait... One good thing I am getting for the mill is a probe which will allow me to make exact copies of parts. I've already got a delrin and nylon supplier setup...

The hardened C-hubs are a Yokomo part - they have an H as a suffix compared to the standard part - it's something like SD-413H (check before you order though).

I think the reason why the aluminum knuckles prevent C-hub breakage is the fact that you can locktight your king pin screws into the knuckle. I would guess that most of the cars that break c-hubs had a lower king pin fall out first or at least been very loose.

I have had trouble with the lower kingpin screws coming loose. If they are loose your C-hub is at risk. Then a brush on a wall is all it takes to break the c-hub.

I noticed the last 2 c-hubs i broke that the lower kingpin screw was missin for both( and both had been loosening off after a while) I tried some silver kinpins(from the belt car) but i think they are .5mm too long so you have to becarefull not to over tighten them.

Pit tip: Double check kingpins before each run

Yup, sausage, oops sosidge is right, they're made by Yokomo and part number is SD-4134H.

Anyway, I must say I've never broken any C-Hubs, but when I built the car at first I noticed the steering blocks were weak, lost some kingpins and got the Suzuki... Never lost any kingpin again nor broke any C-Hubs...

If you don't want the alloy ones, go for the new graphite ones (the 0 trail are also available in graphite version...).
